Eating Habits – When The Feeling Of Satiety Is Lost

Eating beyond hunger is an issue for many, especially during the Christmas season. But: Eating behavior differs. While some have to remind themselves to eat enough, others can’t get enough and have to deal with a permanent appetite. In such cases, the usual feeling of satiety usually no longer sets in. Causes can be habits – but diets also play a major role. Eating? Only when hungry instead of giving in to appetite. “The first step to getting better always starts with admitting to having an unhealthy relationship with food.

Eating as an activity is completely sufficient – additional entertainment is unnecessary and ultimately even reduces enjoyment. If you manage to avoid any distractions while eating – it’s also much easier to finish the meal at the right time. Slow eating The feeling of satiety usually sets in after about twenty minutes. However, you can’t notice this stop signal in time if you eat at record speed beforehand. For this reason alone, it is a good idea to take your time when eating and to chew a lot and extensively. It also helps to put down your cutlery in between meals, drink water and check whether you are really still that hungry.… weiterlesen
